“When your heart stopped, it broke ours – we lost a son, father a brother, an uncle, and a brother-in-law. Someone who would always be there when you needed him and who loved us all unconditionally. Family was first and foremost in his heart, he loved his family. This was so evident when you entered his place, there wasn’t a family member who did not have a picture somewhere – especially his children. Those are memories he held deep in his heart. We will always miss and love you so very much.”
